Nancy Griffith
My great greats were Thomas Jefferson and Tennessee Griffith Chronister. On their 1880 census in Hartford, Sebastian Co., AR I found Nancy living with them. Then I searched Sebastian Co., and found a Nancy Griffith buried in Steep Hill Cemetery in Fort Smith with the report coming from the funeral home and being given by J N Griffith. She was 75 and this would make her be born in 1810. I had her being born in 1814 or 1815 in GA. They had 2 sons, one dying at age 3 and one reported as being killed in a barber shop in Poteau with no details. Simon had a brother William Riley and I don't have burial facts on him but he was reported to have died in 1870. Martha Griffith is buried in Hall Cemetery in Poteau. It is a puzzle. I put Nancy's site in my tree until I find out the facts. Thank you for answering.

Do you know anything about his parents? I am searching for Jonathon Griffith born to Simon Monroe Griffith in LeFlore County, OK. He was reportedly shot in a barber shop in Poteau in a case of mistaken identity. First sibling born 1865 and last sibling born 1883. Mother Nancy Griffith is in this cemetery. She was married to Seth Griffith b. 1811 in TN. The census states she was born in GA. I have no information on Jonathon except first name and death information. Jeri Brock #47347716

RE: James Robert Harvey Davis
EARLY SKAGIT PIONEER CALLED; SETTLED IN '71. -

HAMILTON, Sept. 30. -- Harvey Davis, one of the best known of Hamilton's pioneer residents, passed away at his home west of town at 1:30 p.m Wednesday, after an illness of about a year. He was born near Nashville, Tenn., March 6, 1851. He came west in 1871, returning to Arkansas in 1884, where he married Miss Polly Roughton May 19 of that year. Immediately after his marriage he brought his bride west, and the young couple traveled up the Skagit river in a canoe to the ranch near Hamilton upon which they have lived since. Mr. Davis is survived by his widow, three children, Maurice and Cauncey of Hamilton, and Mrs. Myrtle Harmon of Harmon, of Phoenix, Arizona, and two grandchildren, Aleck Pflaum and Harvey Dell Harmon. All were with him at the last, his daughter having been summoned from her Arizona home when it became apparent that the end was approaching. Funeral services will be held at the Hamilton church at 2 o'clock Tuesday afternoon, with interment in the Hamilton Cemetery.


Obituary originally published in the Bellingham Herald newspaper of Bellingham, Whatcom, Washington, USA on 30 Sep 1921.

James Robert Harvey Davis' wife, Polly Adelaide Roughton is my husband's Great Grand Aunt.

Hello
Would love to be able to help with the upcoming work on the headstones at Steep Hill but I am disabled. My health has been rapidly declining. What I do for Find-A-Grave now is done on my computer. I try to keep my listings updated and create memorial pages for people that are dear to my heart. I hope there will be a good number turn out to help and the weather is nice.

Annie Pepper still has several grand children living in the Fort Smith area (I live in Jefferson City, Mo.). I am going down there in a couple of weeks and I will see some of them. Let me talk to them about this and I will get back to you about it. I know that at least of couple of the kids live in Pacola, Ok. You are much appreciated by this family for everything you do. Thank you again.

RE: Maurice Longinus Davis
Nope, they are not listed in the cemetery records for Lake View. If you have the date of death I suggest checking the Seattle Times - available through GenealogyBank - most public libraries have a subscription.

I have transferred this memorial to your member number. I was very sorry to read of the passing of your son-in-law's grandfather. I want to apologize for not transferring this memorial earlier as you were extremely eager for a transfer. Unfortunately, the flu and cold season has been very unkind to me this year and I have been quite ill since mid-January.

I did check The Seattle Times newspaper, but was unable to find an obituary for Mr. Davis. If your library (city, state, university) has access to GenealogyBank, The Seattle Times is part of their database and you might find articles about your son-in-law's family. The Washington State Digital Archives can also be very helpful:

There are also some great volunteers on the free King County, Washington message board found on Ancestry.com/Rootsweb if you need additional help.

Thank you so much for the information. Our family records seem to be in error. Do you have the city and county of her birth? I would love to know.
